268-1-5-18 Migraine Alert App:
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
In recent months, I've been experiencing migraines at least a
couple times a week. If you also experience frequent
migraines, check out the Migraine Alert App on the App Store.
Migraine Alert predicts the frequency of a migraine so that
you can try to stop it before it begins. The app uses a
data-science algorithm to create a personalized migraine forecast
based on your uncontrollable triggers, such as weather.
After you record about 15 migraines, the app presents you with
a personalized migraine forecast multiple times a day.
Features of Migraine Alert:
- Migraine forecast allows you to take actions to prevent a
- Weather conditions such temperature, humidity, pressure, and
more are automatically tracked in the background
- Migraine history allows you to track, edit, and share your
migraines with your physician
- Information is anonymously stored
